ABOUT THE PROGRAM: Our Tiny Tots program is designed to help preschoolers get ready for "real" school. Miss Kim (BA, MA, TEFL) and the Hopscotch staff offer a well-rounded curriculum that includes art, music, movement, science, language arts, pre-math, and pre-reading. They have worked with children from around the world for many years and have created a program so that children can flourish in an international preschool community. The Tiny Tots class provides a *fun* atmosphere for children to socialize with others both indoors and outdoors, learn how to stand in line, participate in circle time, and the list continues! Each three-hour session includes instruction, materials for learning activities, art projects, musical instruments, and healthy snacks. (
